Flash BIOS upgrade problems
Posted on 2000-03-17
I have a Packard Smell with a PB600 motherboard. I wanted to try to upgrade the processor and use Kingston's TurboChip. Their site says that my machine is compatable with a BIOS 4.04 or higher. Tech support said I had to upgrade to 4.05.
I went to PB's site (yes, I know that they are out of business) and downloaded the latest BIOS upgrade. Tried it, and it seems to have fried my computer.
Replaced the original chip, can't run Win 98 that was fine before. Tried reinstalling 98, starts out and freezes.
HELP. No computer at home now.
